    ● Please disinfect your hands with the alcohol disinfectant installed in the facility before your visit.
    (If you have difficulty disinfecting with alcohol, please wash your hands with soap etc. Please tell us at the reception.)

    ● Since ventilation is regularly performed in the facility, the room temperature may drop on days when the outside temperature is low.
    If you are worried, please come to the hospital with a cardigan and other things to wear in advance.

    ● Please strictly adhere to the reception hours and cooperate with us to prevent crowding and close contact.

    3. If pneumonia is suspected from the symptoms, we will consult with the public health center or refer you to the hospital in principal. In addition, if it is not possible to distinguish pneumonia from cold, we can prescribe a general cold medicine, but we cannot prescribe a special antiviral medicine.

    4. We are unable to conduct tests for the Novel Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19) at our clinic. Also, due to a limitation on related tests, we are sorry that we cannot issue medical certificates regarding the presence or absence of infection.
